Description

Brief desc: When working in a film roll consisting of images that were copied locally (using the "copy locally" lighttable feature), creating an HDR composite using the "create HDR" feature produces an unexpected or non-intuitive behavior.

Expected behavior: Selecting the images and "create HDR" produces a .dng file and places it in the film roll with the current working images.

Observed behavior: Selecting the images and "create HDR" produces a .dng file, which does not appear in the active film roll, but instead is visible in "film roll %".

I expect that this is because it's creating the .dng composite within the ~/.cache/darktable directory, which is not connected to the original directory in which the locally copied images are located.
